And so it is done!! 30 days of one stroke painting, spread over about 60 days whoops! But I completed my challenge, despite losing inspiration several times, teaching my first workshop (!) and having some kind of RSI in my ‘hyper-mobile’ wrist! It’s been way tougher than I thought it would be, but the sense of accomplishment is awesome. I’ve fallen in love with one stroke even more, finding it to be even more fabulous and versatile than I first thought. Here’s to more crazy self-challenges!
‘On the job’ Sugar skull from Halloween – private client
‘On the job’ sugar skulls – intricate lacy forehead pieces requested and delivered! Two fun girls going out on the town for Halloween!
Pregnancy bump painting using one stroke technique! 3 different one strokes for the rainbow, and “teddy bear” combo for Bambi. Black starblends used for shading.
The next installment in my painting ‘one stroke for one month’ challenge! Some of these were painted in my own time at home, some were painted ‘on the job’.

Next month I am teaching my very first workshop – in Northern Ireland! In preparation I am creating different one stroke designs every day – practising my technique and rediscovering the endless possibilities one can create with one strokes! I simply adore this method of painting, with its mouthwatering array of colour combinations, and the effortless blending effect achieved with one stroke of the brush ❤ Here’s to the next 24/25 days!!
Here are some of my recent commissions, all requested by beautiful strong women as gifts for the beautiful, inspiring women in their lives.
I love to paint commissions ♥♥♥ to liaise with clients to create something truly unique and personal.
If you have an idea for a personal painting, please get in touch! firstname.lastname@example.org It can be a brand new concept or based on a painting I’ve already done (eg.same design, different colours).
♥♥♥ Reviews ♥♥♥
“It is so beautiful Livi. The photo did not do it justice, my daughter will love it so much. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤” D. Hall, Leicester
“I’ve put so much thought into what to buy and now I found the perfect gift. The painting is fantastic, thank you!” Anna Allard, Sweden
“I cannot thank you enough Livi. It’s for my dearest friend who has been battling bipolar and PTSD. I wanted something made for her with all the things she loves so she knows how much I care for her. You have done this for me and will be forever grateful. Xxx”
Rainbows are quite possibly my favourite thing to paint! I love to improvise and create unique different designs on the spot. Here are two fairly recent creations.
The left was a girl at a Pride event.
The right was a little boy who wanted me to paint his dreams being eaten by nightmares!!
